About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Conan Doyle was an amazing writer. If you wish he's written more Sherlock Holmes' stories, try some of his other novels. You'll be glad you did.
In spite of being written in the vernacular of the 19th century, the author has penned an adventure with enough cliff hangers that will keep you spellbound until the end of the book.
Both adults and young adults, especially those of Huguenot descent, will love this classic adventure story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The reader will coincidently learn a great amount of good history while racing through through the book's imaginative scenes of traveling to Canada. The main characters are stranded on an ice floe, attacked by Indians, and hunted by an unpleasant Jesuit.
Courage and bravery, derring-do and a sense of honor characterize not only the featured Huguenot family, but also woodsmen, soldiers, a crippled Catholic priest and an Iroquois woman married to a Frenchman.

If you like adventure, this is an excellent book. Also, if you like historical fiction, it also fits that category. Very well written, as you would expect from this gentleman.Published on October 31, 2013 by Amazon Customer
